Marvel’s Echo has made an impressive debut, landing in Nielsen’s Top 10 in its first week of streaming. The series, available on both Disney+ and Hulu, follows Maya Lopez (Alaqua Cox) after her intense encounter with Wilson Fisk/Kingpin (Vincent D’Onofrio) in Hawkeye. With a 70% critics score on Rotten Tomatoes and a strong start on both streaming platforms, Echo quickly claimed the number one spot upon its release. According to Nielsen’s data, the show ranked 10th overall in streaming for the week of January 8th to January 14th, accumulating an impressive 731 million minutes watched during its first six days.
This achievement is a significant win for Marvel, as it’s uncommon for MCU shows to reach the charts in their first week. One potential reason for Echo’s immediate success could be its release as a binge-watch series, marking the first of the Disney+ era Marvel shows to debut in this format. The fast-growing popularity of Echo has solidified its position among the streaming heavyweights, demonstrating the audience’s enthusiasm for further exploration of Maya’s story and the world of Marvel.
Alaqua Cox, who portrays Maya in the series, recently shared her aspirations for the character’s future. In an interview with Deadline, she expressed her desire to see Maya join the Avengers, highlighting the opportunity to collaborate with other superheroes like Mark Ruffalo’s Hulk. Cox also discussed her hopes for Maya to reconnect with her family and distance herself from the traumatic memories of New York City. As fans continue to follow Echo’s journey, Cox’s insights into her character’s development add to the excitement surrounding the series. Echo is currently available for streaming on Disney+ and Hulu and will be leaving Hulu on April 9th.Follow us to get free & fast MCU Movies/Shows Leaks & News
